entrance

Make a splashy entrance and kick off the party with a memorable reception entrance song. After all, it’s the first time you’ll be introduced as newlyweds, so choose a tune that’s upbeat and energetic—something that will set a lively tone for the rest of the evening. If you’ve booked a DJ, we love the idea of creating a custom mashup of your and your spouse’s favorite songs. Or, if you’ve hired a band, take advantage of the horn section by choosing a tune with a lot of fanfare. Whatever song you select, make it one that will put your guests in a dancing mood. Here’s a list of high-energy, attention-grabbing songs that will help get your wedding reception off to a great start.
